Again I am experimenting here with flyby's and trying to create more "natural" environments. This animation includes a physical sun with lens flares. The ship is mostly in shadow, but this was to show the real "star" (lol no pun intended
) of the show which is the sun and the sky revolving as the camera pans to follow the ship. In fact if you look closely you can see the constellation of Orion come into view in the lower left hand portion of the screen just before the sun comes into view - at the beginning of the sequence you can also see "The Seven Sisters" a star formation also known as the Pleiades.
The ship is the VCX-350 Light Freighter from the Corellian Engineering Corporation (also manufacturers of the popular YT-1300 aka The Millenium Falcon

Sound effects are again by me, with the exception of the opening Lucasfilm sound. The ship flyby sound effect is again a recording of a car passing - I was lucky enough to have a brand new Mustang GT350 pass by as I was recording with no other traffic nearby
